“I am a lover of progressive politics and good governance. We are progressives in our party too. I also testify to the progressive politics of Senator Adeola over the years. I am actually a fan of his in the political arena. So I am stepping down for him alongside other candidates and 34 political parties, some of whom don’t have candidates. It is a joint decision after considering the major parties and candidate. Senator Adeola is the best choice for Lagos West” he stated.
While calling for violence free election on Saturday, Dr. Gabriel said that youths should cast their vote for a tested legislator as Lagos West and indeed Lagos State cannot afford to field an inexperienced legislator in the highest legislative body in Nigeria.
Senator Adeola who was elated at the gesture of the candidates and the political parties commended the candidates and political parties for acknowledging that he has done his best in effective representation and good governance as a legislator over the years adding that he will always improve on what he has done in the past as well as fulfill all pledges made during electoral campaign.
“I am in my home base here in Alimosho. I was elected for two terms as a State Legislator for Alimosho State Constituency 2. I was elected as House of Representatives member for the Alimosho Federal Constituency and as Senator for Lagos West. In all Alimosho have stood by me with their massive votes and I promise to continue to do that which has earned me their confidence as a representative” Adeola stated.
He urged Alimosho electorate to continue to vote for the progressives as they had done since 1999 stressing that PDP and its candidates must not be allowed to come back to power to continue the looting and mis-governance of their 16 years rule.
